Don't Stop Movin'
tracks the group's travels around the UK for their sell-out Carnival 2002
arena tour. From rehearsals to the last night, the nine episodes (originally shown on BBC TV) highlight their travails and tears. The programmes succeed in depicting the human side of S Club, with Paul declaring his love for Hannah and Jo discussing how she was bullied at school (though there are also occasional glimpses of S Club's prima donna showbiz egos along the way). There are plenty of surprises too with Tess Daley appearing on stage at their Glasgow gig to present their Brit Award, and Will Young and Gareth Gates (the support act for the tour) appearing in a number of the episodes. Interspersed with extracts from the live show, the release serves as a taster for S Club Carnival Live
. However, the nine episodes do stretch the material to the extreme, with the footage perhaps being better suited for a compact 30-minute behind-the-scenes bonus documentary on the concert DVD.
On The DVD: Don't Stop Movin' offers no bonus material or additional features. The colourful feature visuals and crisp sound do at least convey the backstage energy and atmosphere. --John Galilee
